Wendy Bear Patient Assistance Program

The Wendy Bear Patient Assistance Program is able to grant up to $1500 per person with an ostomy because of cancer.

Information is on their website:


The Wendy Bear Patient Assistance Program is named in memory of the wife of hockey legend Darryl Sittler, a long-time supporter of our charity. Wendy was instrumental in assisting with raising awareness and funds for Colon Cancer Canada before her passing in 2002.  She wanted to ensure that anyone diagnosed with cancer would have the necessary supports to help them manage their life with this disease.  It is in her memory that the Wendy Bear was created with 100% of the proceeds of the bear going directly to support palliative care patients in need.
